About this Event

FIRST 500 is a national initiative primarily focused on highlighting African American women architects and raising awareness of their distinction. In doing so, Tiara’s goal is to inspire African American women to become licensed architects and get to 500 licensed in the U.S. Additionally, FIRST 500 has already begun as a lecture series (featured in publications, podcasts and conferences) and a network. Eventually this project will become a publication highlighting each of the licensed African American women architects. The publication will serve as the central resource for all their stories to inspire young girls interested in entering the industry and the network to provide a place of mentorship when they do.
